Amber posted about the V&A's Sixties Exhibition way back in August, but if you haven't been yet you've got until the 25th of February to saunter on down to South Kensington and check it out. It's a real treat for any fashion fans, I was surprised how enjoyable it was to let my eyes wander over the clothes and take in features like colour combinations, fittings, prints and cuts. If you're not living near London then the website is packed with paper dresses, textiles, fashion memories and interviews. The site also features plenty of designs by Bus Stop, Biba, Granny Takes a Trip, Mary Quant, and of course Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell. If anything the exhibition has convinced me that space age is back and I definitely want a pair of white boots!
